A very bad suggestion. You should not mess with port Makefiles,
especially not for that kind of purpose, to fix a problem by
creating another problem. :-)

It will be set automatically if certain criteria are met.
You'll find the mechanism and some hints why and where it is
being used in /usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk. Let me quote regarding
the IGNORE mark:
Package build should be skipped entirely (e.g.
because of serious unfixable problems in the build,
because it cannot be manually fetched, etc).
The reason will be stored in $IGNORE so you can refer to it.
This shows: Ports marked as IGNORE probably won't build at all.
If you still want to (try to) build the port, see what "man 7 ports"
has to offer (except it's refering to FORBIDDEN, not IGNORE):
NO_IGNORE If defined, allow installation of ports marked as
<FORBIDDEN>. The default behavior of the Ports framework
is to abort when the installation of a forbidden port is
attempted. Of course, these ports may not work as
expected, but if you really know what you are doing and are
sure about installing a forbidden port, then NO_IGNORE lets
you do it.
This is what you could try:
# make -D NO_IGNORE install
But keep in mind that IGNORE isn't there for no particular reason. :-)
